For decades, Cancun has been the go-to Mexican Caribbean destination for countless travelers seeking stunning beaches and luxurious resorts – but this is changing.
Not only have nearby destinations like Playa del Carmen, Tulum, Cozumel, and Akumal skyrocketed in popularity in recent times, but it seems that the Mexican Caribbean’s crown jewel has finally met its match: Costa Mujeres.
Known as the ‘New Cancun’, this secluded coastal area north of Cancun has quickly risen through the ranks, consistently leading hotel occupancy rates and even being recognized as a top destination worldwide.
In addition to its gorgeous coastlines, Costa Mujeres boasts a selection of exceptional, award-winning all-inclusive – which is enough to explain why travelers keep flocking to this paradisiacal hotspot.
Development in the area is moving fast, with two prominent projects opening its doors this season. One is Hyatt’s Secrets Playa Blanca Costa Mujeres, which is set to open on February 1, 2024.
Then there’s the highly-anticipated SHA Wellness Center Mexico, which just started welcoming guests.
This is the Spanish brand’s first wellness clinic in the Americas, offering a much more distinct experience to a traditional resort, as the focus revolves around health and holistic well-being.
@sordo_madaleno SHA Mexico is a new wellness clinic and medical hotel in the Mexican Caribbean. The project includes residences and a comprehensive wellness program, integrating Fitness, Beauty and touch, Treatments, Clinics, and the Water Circuit. The architectural program arranges the residences, spa, and hotel in a linear fashion—a design strategy that ensures all rooms have optimal views of the sea. #SordoMadaleno #architecture #arquitectura #arquitecturaydiseño #fyp #architecturedesign #parametricdesign ♬ Interstellar (Main Theme) – Random Piano
With the wellness travel trend on the rise, now’s the perfect time to check it out. So, if you want to find out more about what this unique all-inclusive has in store for its guests, read on.
A Restorative Retreat Like None Other
While many resorts in the Mexican Caribbean offer some kind of wellness amenities like spas, fitness centers, or both, SHA takes the concept of ‘wellness’ to a whole new level.
Here, it’s not about simply chilling at a jacuzzi, as guests receive personalized health programs expertly crafted by certified medical professionals.
Everything is carried out amidst breathtaking tropical gardens, skillfully designed by landscape architectural firm Maat Handasa.
Additionally, the facility’s 35 residences and 100 oceanfront rooms and suites boast private balconies with captivating ocean views.
It’s hard not to find relaxation in such stunning surroundings!
You can choose among a selection of luxurious suites and residences, from the oceanfront ‘The Beach House’ to ‘The Penthouse’, offering ample terraces and a private pool.
But the beauty doesn’t end there – the property itself is a masterpiece crafted under the expertise of interior designer Alejandro Escudero, who collaborates with the Mexican architectural firm Sordo Madaleno.
The result is an exquisite blend of luxury and nature, with the resort’s suites incorporating organic materials, including wicker, natural textiles, and marble.
This world-class design extends to the resort’s various areas, which include several infinity pools and wellness cabins with views of mangrove forests.
